It was our first visit to Newcastle so decided to try the Old Siam having been to the one in York. Food and staff just as good as York, would highly recommend it. I don't like anything too hot or spicy and the chef is there to please.

Went there few times for dinner. Did not disappoint me everytime. Brought friends along and the food is good. Staff were friendly and attentive. Probably the best thai food in Newcastle. Highly recommended.

Had been meaning to visit for a long time and finally did with a friend. The staff were really attentive and because it's quite small they were able to keep on top of everything despite it being pretty busy. Between the two of us we had starters and mains and beers. The food was delicious and the portions were pretty... More

Came for a meal here because of recommendations from trip advisor. Did not disappoint. We opted for the platter to share for starter and both got massaman curry for main. It was exceptional food. We have both been to Thailand so our expectations were very high but the taste was truly authentic. Great service too. 5* all round. Would definitely... More

Traditional welcome when we arrived without a reservation. Steady flow of locals filling the available tables, always a good sign. I tried an old favourite of Pak tord with chilli dip followed with thai green curry. Enjoyable but a different flavour to what I am used to at two other thai restaurants I regularly use. They took time to explain... More

We came here for an evening meal on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was calm and intimate-very different from just outside the front door! The food was delicious especially the lamb massaman curry. The staff were really friendly and it was reasonably priced. We would wholeheartedly recommend it, and we will definitely visit again. Thank you :)

What amazing food they serve here. Been here a lot and I must say the food is absolutely excellent and so is Nong and the staff. You are always made welcome and nothing is a problem to them. The food is out of this world whatever you decide to have nothing would be a disappointment. If you are visiting Newcastle... More

We visited The Old Siam on a busy Saturday evening, and were glad we had booked. We were given a table near the window which gave us a great view of Newcastle getting ready to party on a Saturday night! The food was great, we had a set menu and could not fault any of the dishes. We thought the... More

My wife and I had a great meal here last night. Yes they made a mistake with my main course but they put it right very quickly. Great food and brilliant flavours.
